** All of these films were big-budget flops, more the territory of RiffTrax than MST3K. MST3K has always been about finding poorly-made low-budget cinema and holding it up for both admiration ''and'' mockery, rather than delivering much-needed beatdowns to expensive-but-awful films.

In 2017, ''MST3k'' is set to receive an official comic book adaptation, the details of which are still under wraps. Because riffing old comics could potentially be pricey, it's possible that the comic will delve deeper into the characters' backstories, eliminating the need to cast an actress for Kinga's mother (if she only appears in the comics), and/or allowing Dr. Forrester to show up again without the need to do a flashback episode or worry about Trace coming back.

** Crow could also have been rebuilt from the old loaner AMC Crow Gypsy was tooling around with.

[[WMG:The Bots in Season 11 aren't the original units]]
Gypsy is a recreation from the large parts of her systems integrated with the SOL, Tom Servo is one of the many Tom duplicates that Kinga found on the SOL and repaired along with the rest of the satellite, and Crow is the time-travel duplicate last seen working at the cheese factory in Wisconsin. The originals are all still living happily with Mike, producing Rifftrax.

** Or maybe ethical concerns. He always treated the robots as his friends; he wouldn't want his creations to become a slave race.

Kinga Forrester built new copies of them (and the SoL) based on viewing her father's and grandmother's experiments, as part of her goal to become an entertainment mogul. That's why they don't quite look or sound the same as before. (Though - and this part is canon, not WMG - Gypsy's new voice and hanging from the ceiling are additional modifications made by Jonah. Kinga's version probably still had a harsh falsetto voice and was definitely still coiled all over the floors)

[[WMG:The bots were forced to work for Kinga due to Gypsy's company going bankrupt]]
After escaping to Earth at the end of Season 10, Gypsy set up her own company. Originally, Crow, Tom Servo and Cambot didn't join her, but they changed their minds later on. Sadly, the financial crisis of 20072008 hit the company hard and left the poor bots with a huge financial dept, thus forcing them to start working for Kinga in the new SOL.

[[WMG: The seemingly random numbers from the season 11 openings provide clues about season 12]]
*Not the episode numbers on the Iron Butterfly, but the non-sequential numbers that show up inside Jonah's ship.

[[WMG: The Purple Jumpsuit Guy is another experiment Kinga is working on just in case Jonah didn't gell with focus groups]]

to:

[[WMG: Jonah is a MeaningfulName.]]
* Just like his Biblical namesake, Jonah will spend three days in the belly of the whale--or giant robot snake, as the case may be. Then he'll get vomited out, alive and well, just in time for season 12. (Evidence against it: we do see Reptilicus Metallicus ''chewing'' a few times before swallowing Jonah...)

[[WMG: Jonah escaped death by cloning himself.]]
* Fearing that marriage to Kinga would be a FateWorseThanDeath, Jonah prepared a way to escape. He cloned himself with the just-offscreen nutrient vat from the ''Reptilicus'' episode. Then, with his just-completed spacesuit, he hid outside the SOL for the duration of the ceremony.
** Alternately: Jonah was too nice to force his own clone to marry Kinga in his place. So they flipped a coin to decide which of them would go on the spacewalk and which would go to the wedding. The original Jonah lost the coinflip. So season 12 will feature Clone Jonah Heston (Clonah Heston?) as the new host.

* It's already established Kinga likes milestone celebrations so it makes sense she'd want to play to the audience's nostalgia (and out of universe it seems like the kind thing Mike and Joel will be down for, especially now that Joel is writing for the show again). Their presence on the SOL will be either be handwaved as doing repairs again. Or since Jonah, unlike Mike, is perfectly capable of doing repairs himself, Kinga kidnaps them especially for the anniversary special, and then once it's over ejects them and rigs up some kind of alarm that alerts her whenever their heat signatures are near by or someonething, preventing them from saving them.

* Or alternatively will be instantly destroyed once it's revealed that Jonah is [[spoiler: NotQuiteDead]] because Tom and Crow feel they don't need to show respect towards Jonah again. Growler will be oddly ok with it.

The Crow and Tom with him are a few of several Kinga had created (for brand recognition in case anything happened to the originals-or alternatively she never bot napped the originals and they're all recreations.

[[WMG: The bots actually want to get escape more than Jonah does.]]
* They where kidnapped off their usual places on Mike's couch and want to get back to Earth. Unfortunately they got stuck with a human who's just a bit too easy going and isn't trying too exceptionally hard with his escape attempts. In addition to this Mike (or even possibly Joel) are trying to get the bots, but Kinga has minions keeping them from intervering/if they dock the SOL Kinga will immediately rekidnap them too.
